Here Are The 4 Basic Rules Of A Good Sleeping Pattern According To Scientists


Sleep quality is one of the most important aspects of modern life. I'm sure nearly everyone has experienced a bad day after not getting a good night's sleep. So, what are these rules that define whether or not you've got a good sleeping pattern?

A lot of people define the quality of their sleeping pattern with how many hours they've slept.

Most specialists agree that there's much more to it than that!

So, basically sleeping for 7-9 hours doesn't necessarily mean you've got a healthy sleeping pattern.

So what are the other factors? According to Sleep Health magazine, there are 4 criteria.

Whether or not you fall asleep within the first 30 minutes you get in bed.

If it takes longer for you to fall asleep then there's a problem with the quality of your sleep. If you mess around with your phone in bed, the light from your phone can significantly decrease the quality of your sleep.

Waking up approximately once a night.

If you wake up more than once a night, even if you sleep 7-9 hours a night, it means you get low quality sleep. So, if this is the case you might want to get that checked out.

Being able to go back to sleep in 20 minutes if you wake up at night.

If you can't get back to sleep after waking up in the middle of the night and you have to resort to watching TV or spending time in the kitchen, it might mean you've got a sleeping disorder. Of course, if this happens very rarely, there's no need to worry.

Only sleeping 85% of the time you spend in bed.

This is basically the same as the criteria mentioned above, it's basically about how much time you spend tossing and turning in bed while you try to get some sleep.

To sum it up, sleep quality isn't only about what time you go to bed.

You have to consider all these criteria. It's also worth mentioning that if these symptoms occur rarely then there's no reason to worry about it. But if it happens all the time, it may mean that you have a sleep disorder.
